    I'd ask to add Colpar Hobbies but it's already there! Might be worth mentioning that they're now referred to as "Colpar's Hobby Town West". (Edit: the lakewood store that is) They made the change about a year ago... Not sure why though.
    Also may be worth mentioning that their is a Hobby Town USA near Fort Collins. Nice place, been their a few times, have Gunpla on the back wall when you first walk in to the left.

    Re: National Gunpla Retail Store Database

    It has Hobby Lobby in the list. YP does the same thing in my area, and I haven't seen Gunpla at a Hobby Lobby for at least 10 years (probably more like 12). So unless people want to verify which of these stores actually (still) carries Gunpla, I'm not going to add anything suggested by YP, because like I said before, they tend to suck at accurately finding Gunpla. In fact, it's the horrible inaccuracies of sites like YP that caused me to make this list in the first place, because I got tired of the false hope provided by them. Basically, this list needs to be accurate, and YP has a record of not being very accurate when it comes to Gunpla.

    Bottom line, I'll only include the sites in the search query linked above if a member has visited the stores in question, or verified the presence of Gunpla via phone, email, the store's website, etc.

    On a related note, if any of the sites already on the list permanently stop carrying Gunpla at some point in the future, notify me, and I'll strike them from the list. Please verify the discontinued status of Gunpla at the store with a manager before telling me to remove the store. Some of these stores are small and may have only temporarily run out of Gunpla, and we don't want to strike those stores, if they plan on getting more Gunpla in stock.
    Sieg Zeon!

    I read somewhere that hobby lobby doesn't stock gundam because of the "horns"on the kits bearing resemblance to demons and hobby lobby being a Christian company. Dunno if there's any truth to that though.

    Ha! Wouldn't surprise me, since Walmart refused to stock Deathscythe Hell toys for similar reasons.

    I guess that'd be logical, would make sense why they sell kits from other franchises (Star Wars, Star Trek, heck even Military armor vehicles.) which can and sometimes are just as violent as gundam can be.

    Good ole' wholesome Hobby Lobby, lol. I'm an atheist, so you'd never catch me in there to begin with, but someone should tell them they aren't horns, they're v-fins! There's a difference, dammit!

    Ironic, right? They won't stock a simple toy - a TOY - just because it has "hell" in its name, but yet you can buy guns and bullets in their stores. You know, things that are actually dangerous should they fall into...unstable hands.

    Yeah, so true! But you're forgetting something very important... *whispers* none of those have horns on their head! LMAO!

    My parents live in Laurel now and there's a ton over in a Hobby Works there too. I can't remember anything from EC and I definitely was't into gunpla when I was growing up in Bel Air lol
